We found this place after paying too much for food at a food truck while we were working at a festival. Lunch special was cheap, came with soup and egg roll and was very good. Try it.

What a great place! This was our first visit as we recently moved to the area. Karen was our waitress and the service was OUTSTANDING! The food (orange chicken, hot and sour soup, crab rangoon, and egg roll) was fresh, delicious, hot, and fast. Price was very good. Adding soup, egg roll, and crab rangoon to my entree for $2.50...

The food is very good. Is your typical Chinese food, but not fast food. The prices are a little high. We mostly order to go, but have used the restaurant on occasion. It is never completely full, but maybe it is because of the time of evening that we go. But if you want Chinese food in Bandera, go here,... More

We've always enjoyed the food, not 5-star but good. The service is speedy & pleasant. The atmosphere is bland & could use an upgrade. The shrimp toast is my favorite. The wine is priced to high for what they are offering.

While the flavor of the food was fine, the serving size of the lunch plate was ridiculous. I had the Mongolian beef with fried rice and there couldn't have been more than half a cup of each, there was just barely enough food to cover the plate. The won-ton soup had about a cup of broth with one won-ton. What... More
